Baer – A crepuscular landscape 2

One thing I’ve been doing so far is making time-lapse videos of the changing landscape and of the sun’s move towards duskdawn. Its the only way I have devised so far to capture the movement and quality of the light. It definitely satisfies the constraint that I placed on myself to ‘be aware of the passage of time’. I didn’t realize when I made that constraint how profoundly imbedded time would be in everything I see and do here.

Speaking of imbedded time, here is the early part of the evening from 9pm to 1pm. Four hours compressed to 20 seconds.

I found that acute angle the sun follows as it slides towards the evening so surprising. Even in the few days we’ve been here the sun is getting lower in the night and staying down for longer. I love the way you can see where the sun is even after it’s gone down from the reflection on the clouds. At the end of this movie the morning was just beginning to lighten towards dawn.

Must be time for bed! Góða nótt!

    1. SayNo to GoPro!
      I’m just using my Nikon with an auto shutter release and taking hundreds of individual images which I group back together again in Quicktime.
      Thanks To Matt Hebert for the intro!
      I’m going to try for 24hrs next. It sounds like a world record or something but, in fact, its not much effort on my part. Just set up the camera, check battery levels from time to time and worry while the camera does it all.
